Riggs Hotel









Known as the ‘Bank of Presidents’, this iconic building has undergone a complete transformation. Respecting the buildings storied history, the Lore Group have designed a hotel that captures the unique past whilst confidently speaking to a new generation of travellers. 

Rochdale Spears Projects in partnership with The Cardy Group worked directly with Lore Designers, Jacu Strauss and Caitriona O’Sullivan to create a range of bespoke furniture pieces and lighting fixtures that reflect the hotel’s unique heritage and contemporary design.

With 181 Guest Rooms and Suites, Rochdale Spears Projects team created the beautiful ‘in-room’ mini bar; each exquisitely branded with a Hand Cast Riggs Logo and a faux lock detail. Craftsmen expertly wrapped fabric panels for each headboard which aligned to the bespoke wall coverings.
